[SOLVED] Odroid XU4 16gb eMMC Module - Not Booting

Unread post by tonynelson » Thu Jun 13, 2019 2:25 pm

I have an XU4 and 16gb eMMC module I purchased last month (all of which through Hardkernel), and I can not get it to boot. I have attempted reading through other threads.

Solid red light, no blue or signs of booting.

I did swap the eMMC with one I own for a separate XU4 and the new XU4 boots without an issue.

I have attempted flashes of the following two files at separate times using etcher:
recalbox.img.xz
ubuntu-18.04.1-4.14-mate-odroid-xu4-20181203.img.xz

Just for the heck of it, I also flashed an sd card, changed the xu4 boot from emmc to sd, and it boots from the sd card without an issue. This all leads me to believe it's just an issue with the eMMC module I received. Though I'm far from an expert, which brings me to reaching out here to the real experts.

I am very appreciative for any help anyone can provide. Thank you.
